    Last enamel restore (for the moment!).

    This is a tiny one inch wide silver enamel butterfly pin, C clasp.
    As you can see, very damaged!

    No marks, but certainly John Atkins & Sons, as these red dots are particular.

    I used Pebeo vitrail colors to recreate lackings.

    Thanks for your visit ;-)

      Yes Phil it is transparent color to apply on glass to give stained glass effect (if you complement it with a thick grey contouring).

      Mixed with colourless, I could nearly match original colour.

      Applied in drops with a tooth pick to get the same thickness, et voilà !
